I would check the coil, coil wire and spark plug wires. A local parts store should have the Ohms reading for the coil, coil wire and plug wires.

I have a 96 ford explorer v6 with a pushrod motor and after we replaced the pushrods, the head gaskets, the valve cover gaskets and the fuses, the car will not idle. what could be the problem?

Have you adjusted the pushrods properly? Pushrods generally need to be adjusted after installation.

Not sure how to do this on this model, although I own a 94 Ford Explorer with the V6 4.0 Liter motor.

Basically, when a gas engine doesn't run, you check 4 things, and narrow it down from there.

1. Gas (Is gas pressure good, is gas flow strong enough?)
2. Spark (are all spark plugs firing properly? Is spark strong enough)
3. Combustion at each cylinder (timing, pushrod adjustment)
4. Air Flow (MAF/MAP sensor working? Air Filter dirty?)

2002 cavalier, trac off light came on and then car died and could not get it started again

I would agree with the mechanic. Since the engine will start but dies, you can assume that the battery may be (barely) strong enough to start the vehicle but not strong enough to keep it running. After the engine starts, the alternator does the lions share of producing enough electrical energy to produce a strong spark at the spark plugs. If the alternator is not doing its job, the battery drain fairly rapidly and your engine will die. Within a fair degree of certainty, I would say that the "trac off" light will not occur after the alternator is replaced.
Best of luck!

While changing spark plugs one broke off & thread part still in the head, what is the best way to get it out.

You should still be able to get a spark plug socket on it. Unscrew it all the way until it is loose. I am assuming you have the engine where the spark plugs are recessed in the head and difficult to reach. What you need, once the remaining part of the plug is loose, is a very strong magnetic pickup tool that is long enough to reach the plug. Another option is to get a length of rubber hose just small enough to fit in the spark plug hole, but large enough to fit around the spark plug. Push the hose down over the spark plug. If it fits snug enough, you will be able to pull the plug out with the rubber hose. Good luck.
